You use your flashlight to peer down the unworking vent. It looks like part of the fan mechanism has gotten clogged with stray grass and the like. You grab some of the tools from the nearby cabinet, and use them to remove the vent cover... as well as further dismantle the fan so it doesn't turn on while you're stuck in the vents.

Caius chuckles when you begin climbing into the vent. You stop to see what he's laughing about.

"It's nothin'. Tha others, they uh, mentioned this is a thing ya do, I just still wasn't ready for it. Like, no messin' around, just... there she goes."

You tell him you should be back in a second, you just want to see where the vent leads. He nods, grinning. "Yeah, no problem."

You make your way through the vents, popping out on the other side.

Aww I kind of love the little desktop flower-science-pod.

Time to poke around the desk! Drawers and computer and underneath where secret drawers usually are. :3

Also I guess we should examine the... furnacey-looking thing? Maybe Dr. Finch would be better at figuring that out though.

Can we guess where that door goes, based on where the vent went?

Ooh, a computer! Time to get Fuse over here.

Also...that looks like either a cupholder or vase for the daisy, check to see what it is? If it's the latter, might be what got the system to default to daises.

Check to see if the far door is locked, but don't go through it yet.

For the...thing, in the middle, looks almost like a stove or fusebox? Check that as well, obviously, if it opens.

I suspect it's a desktop version of the flower tanks (or as Finch calls them "containment vessels") throughout the facility.

I kind of want one. As someone with a bit of a black thumb, having a desktop thing-what-makes-flowers-sprout sounds excellent to me!

That looks like a furnace. Check that out, see if it's on/hot. If it isn't either of those, open 'er up and see what's inside, sift through the ashes to see if there's any diamonds or gold doubloons or human skulls in there or something.

Then check the handle of the door and see if it's unlocked, maybe peek in to see what's in there, but don't go in just yet.

Check out the computer and see if it's password-protected. If not, click around and see what you can see.

Call to Caius as to what you've found, keep him updated on what you're doing.

Also, Be Aware of Dr. Finch to make sure he isn't accosted by Jury-bots.

Do not diss Jane's vent hermit powers honed through careful practice and intense training, Caius.
You only wish you could enter them and join the fun.

It's a terrible tragedy that Caius will never get to have fun with the vent puppies and eat all the delicious vent snacks and go on a magical vent adventure. :D

I say we peek out the door, I have a hunch it leads to the entrance.

or in the very least, another room in a hallway on the other side.
